Sport for Business hits the road this week and next with our partners 2Into3 to host a series of Sports Club Masterclasses.
The subject this time around is the very pressing matter of how clubs can be best prepared for applications to get a share of the €40 million on the table as part of the 2018 Sports Capital Fund.
Applications will open from this Friday and remain open only until October 19th.
Our Masterclasses will take place this evening in Cork, tomorrow night in Athlone and then next week in Dublin.
The details of the fund and the criteria which clubs need to meet were announced last Thursday by Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross T.D. and Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin T.D.
The fund is the Government’s primary vehicle for providing support to sports clubs and communities to develop sports infrastructure around the country. It has delivered over €100 million into local sports communities and is vital for clubs to get right.
“We will be there to answer the questions, guide the application process and help clubs deliver their best chance of securing a transformational amount of funding for their club,” said Darren McMahon of 2Into3.
We will report tomorrow morning on how tonight’s session has gone.
